Retired General Motors designer who now works on subjects dealing with genealogy. I create trees using items I find in old Google News Archive newspapers and I contact other tree owners notifying them about the news item concerning their relative and send them a link to the tree I created. I post a screen print of the news item on the tree for others to copy, so that my work will benefit others. Occasionally, I will post about the tree I created or the item that I found, always with a "how to" in-bedded in the post. I want my blog posts to help others with their family trees or with their genealogy experiences.

  1. I am one of your followers because I LOVE browsing old newspapers too. I often get side-tracked from my genealogy research (usually the reason I was looking at a certain newspaper) by stories about interesting people or beautiful graphics in an ad. I have found MANY clues that have helped me further identify family members or understand historical events.

    I especially enjoy bloggers like you that are driven by their own interests and memorialize their findings whether or not they have a large readership. I am also an ancestry.com member and believe it or not, it had never occurred to me to try and find the owner of a tree so that I could share the oddball facts I learned about their family member or just create a tree on ancestry.com just because it might help someone out in the future.

    So keep on doing what you do! At least 1 of your 3 followers enjoys it!
    I plan to do more posts about my own interests on my blog when I retire.

    1. I really DO have a reader? Oh, wait a minute is that you son trying to fool me…

      Thanks Kathy for the wonderful message. Old newspapers are fun to read and there so many interesting items in them that one can really get lost just reading one collection let alone 2040. The 2040 is the number of newspaper collections in the Google News Archive.

      I look forward to reading your retirement blog and from the way you write this message I am sure it will be well written and entertaining.

      Thanks again for stopping by and for the comment.
